Words of Love PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Words of Love free pdf Romantic love has always exerted a powerful influence over the human imagination. This book trails the most formidable lovers of the past centuries, tracing the history of romantic love in Western culture from the songs of the Troubadours, to Shakespeare's innovative heroines, through the rise of the Romantic novel to late-20th-century reflections on the genre. The author challenges the actual emotion of love and suggests that it could be an invention- the accumulative result of centuries of social custom, conditioning and control.
